Each First Nation’s situation is unique, influenced by different priorities and challenges associated with environmental issues, capacity and community expectations. EMPs should reflect this distinctiveness, both in the content of the plans and in the ways they are prepared.

Environmental Management Planning
Protect your lands and waters…your way.
Many First Nations are beginning to recognize the value of environmental planning as an important initial step in land governance and economic development. An Environmental Management Plan (EMP) identifies environmental challenges in a First Nation’s reserve and proposes approaches to resolve those issues.
EMPs are an agreed upon requirement between Land Code communities and INAC under the Framework Agreement on First Nation Land Management.
